    just wondering what wads you all are using on sts hulls. Also what wads in gun clubs if anyone reloads them. I have been using the CB1100 in AA gun club sts and nitro.

    I use Green Dusters for all 3 of those hulls for 1 ounce loads.

    Fig 8 and occasionally RXP 12. You would be reall happy with the performace of the Fig 8 especially after using that AA wad.---Matt

    AA wad work well but I just recently bought a 1000 claybuster CB3118-12A wads which are a figure 8 clone to try. I like the finished shell but they are a little tough getting into the wad guide. The wads are about an 1/8" longer than the AA wads.

    The wad you are using will work fine. You will never know the difference.

    AA orange for ounce and an eighth, pink for one ounce.

    But Jerry P has it right. It dont' matter. I use he above because I think it does not stress the loader as much

    Duster wads in 12 and 20 ga. The Downrange XL1 (lime neon green) is also superb in STS hulls.

    I've loaded 15,000 CB1100 in AA & STS for 1oz loads.

    I also like the DR XL-1. They are a touch shorter so back off the wad pressure a touch and get great loads.

    I'm surprised to see that I was the only one using the Windjammer 1 1/8-ounce wad. I prefer the Downrange version but I do use the Claybuster from time to time. Works well in either the STS or AA hulls.

    Windjammer wads are fine if you load with a single stage loader and can inspect the position of the wad petals after you insert it. Otherwise, you'll find that you are getting shot between the petals and the hull as a few petals will fold in when the wad goes in. I've had my shot tube fold and crush half the petals on an otherwise-perfect wad so that the shot was mostly outside the wad petals.

    I have no issues with the pedals if you run them through the dryer for a few minutes on low heat. In fact lately the newer Downrange version has been coming through quite nicely with the pedals in the right position.

    I have a PW 800 Convertible and an 800C, which are both progressive reloading tools. They both work like a charm with Windjammer wads.

    Figure 8 for 1 1/8 and TGT12 for 1 oz, generally. Some of the clones are real good too. Downrange and Claybuster clones have served me well.

    I've used the Versalite Wads for many years. The Downrange Versalite is a favorite, especially for handicap. Some people have a little trouble with them in certain hulls. They usuallay work rather well in the Remingtons.
